Thank you JER!!!!
Hey, Chips-y Daisy, did you see that dancing 3yr old that I left for you on the Early Bird post? I felt sure you would have enjoyed it though it was a tad long (9mins). Check it out before you go to bed tonight; it’s sure to make you laugh, I think.
Hello. Hello. Hello, JER. Are you ready to party for May 5th? :)
Yes. Bring the party on. :lol:
Okay, give me 40 mins or so to get ready. Have to put on my party garb…if I can find it.
swoosh goes liverpool down the toilet.
go man c.
My sides are sore from laughing. Although, the joke was kinda on me: I turned away when they went three up, couldn’t take it – when I went back it was 3-3.
This will heal your sides! Honest-ish. :) Also, watch till the little man explains why he dances.
Awesome little dude, seems SO overdressed for all that movement! Quite the brilliant little guy!
I’ve watched it several times already. :) :) I can’t believe he’s so coherent at 3yrs old! Then again, a while back Ellen D featured a female 3yr old dancer who was equally coherent. I particularly love the reason he gives for his love of dancing. So mature!
wow three years old, complete adorableness :)
WTF??? Liverpool lost?? It was up 3-0!! Good, that sanctimonious prig Rodgers can’t preen.
Need more Willard! GOP’s ‘desperado’ is showing……
Republicans Launch a Draft Mitt Movement To Get Romney To Run in 2016 politicususa.com/2014/05/05/rep… via @politicususa #p2 #p2b #topprog #ctl— Jason Easley (@politicususa) May 05, 2014
dotster3, are you kidding?
Sounds good to me. Democrats can whoop up on him again. Romneybot is one of the most unlikable people I’ve ever seen.
Perfect!! Perhaps the GOP did not realize PBO was joking when he said the 47% called Myth to apologize!! :) :) :)
This man is an effing menace to everything good and true about America:
“Justice Thomas would have gone further, (a) because he believes the Establishment Clause only applies to the federal government, and that states and local governments can have official religions, and (b) even were that not the case, the only coercion he and Justice Scalia (who concurs on this part) care about is official and not social:”
So the Conservative Justices have no problem with imposing their Christianity on non-believers? They have no respect for the separation of church and state, which is a principle that has served the United States well throughout its history.
No. they are ‘Christians’ who live in an ivory tower and understand nothing of the real work or its implications of the document that they have sworn to protect.
They are shredding the Constitution in front of our eyes. And yet this stupid country wants ‘change’ and ‘doesn’t support Obama’s policies’ and will turn this nation over to maniacs. It’s astounding.
Guacamole de la Casa Blanca en la recepción del Cinco de Mayo, muy sabroso! http://t.co/l51wCCHLdE— La Casa Blanca (@lacasablanca) May 05, 2014
Muchas Gracias, Nerdy!
Holy Guacamole! I’m getting hungry.
Peter Clifford has posted another of his comprehensive updates on Syria – http://www.petercliffordonline.com/syria-news-3
Be forewarned – it’s war. Peter is careful to post warnings for particularly gruesome videos/images to which he provides links.
Hola Amigas y Amigos! Adelante!
Well, I totally missed that at WH.Gov! I was patiently waiting for the sound to kick in while wandering the net. Go back to double-check and got the ‘just concluded’ treatment. I got cheated!
Aw! Forward to 14:30 in the video in the post!
Thanks! Sure is a good thing you cover for slow-wits like moi. :)
Gracias, Chica. I watched it and feel much better now. Off to eat. BBS
Not breaking! Repubs are brain dead!
Dana Perino mocking Obama for doing climate change interviews tomorrow. "I hope they ask him about Benghazi"— Sam Stein (@samsteinhp) May 05, 2014
I think I’m going to stop RT and tweeting about Benghazi. It’s a disease and I feel like I’m just feeding it.
Republicans have all LOST THEIR MINDS.
meta, it’s all in their sick mind. It’s all they think about, day and night, night and day, they dream about it, yes it does seem like they have lost it.
Had a terrific time at #WHCD2014. Thanks @VanityFair for letting me test your pop-up studio! goo.gl/ja5y9U http://t.co/gbKDdOCb8P— Nancy Pelosi (@NancyPelosi) May 05, 2014
The Speaker of the House looks lovely.
She looks amazing!!
Can you just imagine how much better she would look with that speaker gable in her hand. Fingers cross for 2014.
Gawd, I can’t believe how great she looks all the time.
She is my s/hero. I can’t imagine San Francisco politics or the House without her.
This lady is just gorgeous.
Hello Leaders Pelosi ;)
Whistling at her just right now.
What a beautiful outfit!!! Our Nancy Pelosi is so classy. Way to go future Speaker of the House!
Thanks for GoBrooklyn. Hope you are well.
I am. thanks! :)
The photo of AG Holder is awesome as well.
Don’t think I’ve seen that one.

“But the biggest and fiercest battles have been taking place since early morning near Slovyansk and Kramatorsk. At present, separatists, who have experienced serious losses, are being forced to retreat deeper into the cities. In Kramatorsk, Ukrainian security forces have been advancing towards the city center. Last night, expecting penetration at one of the entrances to Slovyansk near the village of Korobov, saboteurs tried to create an armored train near the railway crossing. To do this they began to cut firing slits in the coal-hauling train cars by using oxy-fuel cutting torches. However, after preliminary reconnaissance, Ukrainian military helicopters using precision shooting were able to block those plans.”

I saw that in my TL I just about heaved. She really is an insufferable idiot.
You know Meta, if Hillary associates herself with that woman again, I hope it single-handledly destroys her 2016 ambitions. Incredible.
OMG, I can still feel the horrendous burn from 2008!
Oh, the bitterness….
She also supported Huntsman in 2012:
“America needs a president who understands the special sauce of what it is that makes this country great,” she said. “The fact of his personal story of being half black and all that is a wonderful, inspiriting story. But it doesn’t qualify him to be president.”
Like Maureen Dowd, she was one gin and tonic away from using the N word.
EXACTLY. I remember much worse rhetoric from 2008 but it makes me too sick to google any of it. Disgusting people.
*Like Maureen Dowd, she was one gin and tonic away from using the N word*
Well said. And, in SC ’08, so was Bubba, from my POV.
Hello, Chips, I am coming here late so I am sure you’ve already gone to bed! Thanks for posting this video. I remember hearing about this woman and reading some of her comments in 2008; but this is the first time I’ve seen how she looks like. It’s also the first time I’ve listened to what she had to say. Obviously she must have voted for John McCain; and may be also for Mitt Romney. In this interview with the FOX News guy, she was unable to hide how much she detested President Obama. Right now all my focus is on 2014. But come 2015, I will start foxing on 2016. I really want to see some other Democrats step up and challenge Hillary. If Hillary continues to surround herself with people who despise President Obama she is going to alienate many of us who support the President.
Why again, why not now
What next!!! Sterling!!!
Speaking of braindead……el stupido to the maximus! For all the accolades bestowed on the Clintons for their political acumen, ——ummmmm, not really. Continuously make major harmful decisions. Maybe they’re too addicted to self-destruction.
Please refresh my memory…..who is Rothschild? Remember the name, but forget specifics…..no surprise!
See above vid—pretty much explains it—–led Hillary supporters to McCain——something about Obama she just couldn’t stand. Made multiple appearances to smear Obama——both campaigns.
Exactly Dotster, we keep hearing the Clintons are the smartest political operators on planet earth (that worked well in 2008), and now this? Does she seriously think she can win in 2016 by going out of her way to alienate PBO supporters?!
The Clintons are SURROUNDED by buffoons.
Thanks for the video! Only could get halfway through it, it was so bad. Hillary and her group seem to be operating on the “entitlement to the office” premise, like Romney. This won’t work. Also…….I am not impressed with a “Lady” anything. I don’t like nobility titles in the U.S. They’re okay on Downton Abbey, but that’s fictional. This is pushing all the wrong buttons. Hillary cannot win without the Obama Coalition, but I believe they are too arrogant to believe that. “I love my country more than my party.” B.S.!!!!!
Thanks for this info. Somehow I believe Hillary will shoot herself in the foot again. It’s almost inevitable.
i’ve been convinced for a long time that the clintons are actors for the super-rich. bill’s record as president and hillary’s as senator are the evidence for this claim. given this, it really doesn’t matter to the major power players if hillary wins or not, because if she runs and wins, she will do their bidding, and if she runs and loses, she’ll at least have split the democrats enough to allow a republican to win the white house, who will of course then do their bidding. the super-rich get what they want either way, and that’s why people such as rupert murdoch hold fundraisers for her, so it doesn’t really matter if she wins or not. i’m still hopeful she won’t run.
Lupita Nyong’o is FLAWLESS. Here she is at the Met Ball in New York. I think it’s an homage to a fashion icon from the 70s. Wow…wow…wow!
@MLLE_d @ReignOfApril @ONLY4RM @NerdyWonka @shoelovah Lupita also left her last 2 f*cks in the limo for #MetBall2014 http://t.co/7RzijdoOyf— CK (@GoodGirlRoxy) May 05, 2014
I’m old enough to remember. Yes, this is late 70s fashion. Don’t recall it being this awesome, though.
She is stunningly beautiful. Clothes just love her:) I must say that I do prefer her hair really short and cropped much better though….which is how I wear my own hair. It’s liberating!
Wow! Wow! Wow!
Rock On, Lady ;)
She can do no wrong—@Lupita_Nyongo in @Prada. #MetGala http://t.co/9nJy0Af3Ij— Vogue Magazine (@voguemagazine) May 05, 2014

This is a big deal ….
@VP @AmbassadorRice @JohnKerry @GeoffPyatt @AmbassadorPower @PressSec @vj44 Only 15% voted for Crimea Annexation forbes.com/sites/paulrode… FAIL— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) May 05, 2014
“The website of the “President of Russia’s Council on Civil Society and Human Rights” posted a blog that was quickly taken down as if it were toxic radioactive waste. According to the Council’s report about the March referendum to annex Crimea, the turnout was a maximum 30%. And of these, only half voted for annexation – meaning only 15 percent of Crimean citizens voted for annexation.
The fate of Crimea, therefore, was decided by the 15 percent of Crimeans, who voted in favor of unification with Russia (under the watchful eye of Kalashnikov-toting soldiers).
Putin’s people pulled this “rather unfortunate” report from the President’s Human Rights Council website, but council member Svetlana Gannushkina talked about this subject on Kanal 24 (as reproduced on Ukrainian television), declaring that the Crimean vote “discredited Russia more than could be dreamed up by a foreign agent.””
